Existing cognitively based computational models for wayfinding focus primarily on the exploration of mental representations rather than the information needs for wayfinding. It is important to consider information needs because people trying to find their ways in unfamiliar environments do not have a previously acquired mental representation but depend on external information. The fundamental tenet of this work is that all information must be presented to the wayfinder at each decision point as… CONTINUE READING
